    How can they do it at the pricepoint. Are the materials they use substantially inderior to premium denim lines.

    I live in Toronto Canada and dropped by a local shop to check these out and they were going for $80. The next cheapest denim in the store was $220 which was a SFAM.

    Please discuss. Also, I think all the hype generated from the anti satanic branding on some of there jeans was tactical.

    it's total h&m quality; but that's not the point-they're just having fun and making really cool clothes.

    I kind of want to try a pair, but I have pretty muscular thighs and calves from cycling, so I'm afraid they might look like really bad "mom jeans".

    They're appropriately named. They're really cheap.

    That's both good and bad, of course, so...

    the branding is not anti-satanic. it is anti-christian.

    Some people say the stitching becomes undone to the point where your pants will completely unravel while you are walking down the street.

    Others are very happy with them. But for the price you can't really complain.

    They retail for 80. $80 can get you some much better stuff if you shop carefully. I'd say you can complain.

    I may well be looking in the wrong places, then, though for $50, I still damn well expect a pair of pants to remain pants for some time.

    Yes. I just got a pair in the mail today from bluebee.com They are nothing like premium denim; for one thing the jeans are super-stretchy, almost like spandex. They're ok for what they are: cheap(ish) tight jeans with a highly noticeable patch on the back. Probably not much better than other similarly-priced jeans, but I like the way they fit, and the fact that they are so elastic makes up for the fact that I had to order them large in the waist (31 vs 28 or so I normally wear).

    They're selling cheap jeans... there's only so much you can do to differentiate yourself from all the other companies doing the same thing. Of course its all marketing.
